It’s safe to say that everyone pretty much loves TV host and comedian Ellen DeGeneres. And now you have one more thing to love about her: her new lifestyle brand, ED. The new collection, whose name POPSUGAR says comes from Portia de Rossi’s nickname for Ellen, is filled with easy-to-wear wardrobe staples, including soft t-shirts, comfy sweatshirts and tailored blazers. The collection is replete with clean lines and tailored silhouettes that any wardrobe would benefit from, and according to POPSUGAR, no piece is over $395. We pretty much want everything in the 60-piece apparel collection, but instead of emptying the bank to buy all that, THL decided to pull our favorite pieces from the collection to share with you so maybe you can buy a piece (or two or three) and tell us how you like it — because we’re pretty sure you’re going to like it!
The Raglan Baseball Crew was the first piece of the collection to catch our eye. This comfy crew is made with Japanese cotton which provides a really soft, luxurious feel you are sure to love. The soft colors make it easy to pair with your favorite pair of jeans, making it a very wearable piece for your everyday adventures. The Raglan Baseball Crew is available at EdByEllen.com for $125.
We also loved the ED Seersucker Short, a perfect lightweight short for those hot summer days. It’s so hard to find a short that is not too short (because how often have we tried on shorts that are WAY too short), so what’s great about these is that they have a 4 1/2 inch inseam, making them just long enough to give us some coverage without being too long. This cute short is sure to be your new summer favorite, and they are available at EdByEllen.com for $95.
Perhaps the most versatile piece from the collection is the ED Classic Cotton Blazer. This blazer is the perfect utility player to add to your wardrobe; it can be easily dressed up for a work look with a cute button down (read on for an adorable button down from the ED collection!) or dressed down with your favorite pair of jeans. Blazers with great seaming detail like this one are a great way to look polished while still maintaining a very crisp, precise shape. The ED Classic Cotton Blazer is available for $175 at EdbyEllen.com.
If you are looking for something to wear underneath the gorgeous cotton blazer, look no further than the ED Italian Mini Circles Print button down shirt. This button down is made of an imported Italian fabric, featuring a subtle white dot print on a navy background. The seaming on the shirt offers a very tailored, almost custom-like fit, making it a wardrobe must-have. The Italian Mini Circles Print button down is available at EdbyEllen.com for $145.
No wardrobe is complete without a pair of well-fitting pants. Luckily, the ED Collection offers just the right pair. The ED Windowpane Merino Tailored Pant is made with Italian Super 120’s Tropical Weight Merino wool, allowing for these pants to transition to any season or climate. This pant features a subtle tone-on-tone windowpane pattern, which adds a little bit of personality into a wardrobe basic. The ED Windowpane Merino Tailored Pant is $175 at EdbyEllen.com.
